Self Portrait...always tough but it is a fun challenge.

This is my first entry in some time here at DPC, but I was really needing to get out and take some photos and this gave me the perfect excuse!

Canon 430EX II camera left and just to my right- bounced into a silver umbrella, just above shoulder height and roughly 35 degree angle... fired with PW Flex TT5

I chose a magnolia tree in my back yard as the background to give a nice bokeh at f/3.2

I'm not really sure how this will fair since it has been a while since I have submitted to a challenge. I am by no means an actor so I am not sure if I conveyed enough emotion, but I kinda going for an "empty" sadness.

Great photo but I see concentration or anger as much as sadness. Good luck.

Nicely shot and processed, but I get more anger than sadness.
